What's Next for Dynamics GP?

Written by

Dynamics GP continues to thrive, both for on-premise and cloud customers. Microsoft Dynamics GP is a mature solution with over 45,000 customers around the world, so it isn’t going away anytime soon. However, Dynamics GP isn’t immune from Microsoft’s consistent push towards the cloud.

So why move GP to the cloud?

Here are some reasons why GP customers move to the cloud:

  •           They need to invest in new hardware to support new versions of GP
  •           They are concerned about backups, recovery, security and 24/7 remote access
  •           They are not current with Microsoft on your maintenance and want to add users/capabilities to the system
  •           They are looking for better access to information/reporting (GP2018 required for Power BI)

So what can we expect in future releases of Dynamics GP?

First, Dynamics GP releases and development will continue from Microsoft. The current roadmap is projecting two additional version releases. This clearly indicates a commitment by Microsoft considering these are typically released every two years. Customers should expect various user community requested enhancements and fixes.

Second, the Intelligent Edge will continue to be a focus for Microsoft as they allow for experimentation with AI learning, Power Apps, and the Common Data Service options used within Dynamics 365.

Dynamics 365 Mobile apps are handy tools which allow D365 users to access and update their Dynamics 365 environment from anywhere and at any time. Beyond that, customizing what is available on the mobile app is key to ensure that the experience is efficient for both the user and the organization.

A user’s security role must include the necessary permissions in order for them to successfully use the mobile app. If you have used (or copied) an out of the box role chances are high that most of these are already set, but it never hurts to check. And if you have created a custom security role, it is particularly important to confirm that the following privileges and access combinations have been configured.

1. The Dynamics 365 for mobile privilege is the first one to confirm. This privilege is in the Business Management tab of a security role within the Privacy Related Privileges section. Verify that Dynamics 365 for mobile is set to Organization.

2. Validate that the following entities have a minimum of Read access at the Organization level, by navigating to the Customization tab of a security role.

  • Custom Control
  • Custom Control Default Config
  • Custom Control Resource
  • System Application Metadata
  • System Form
  • User Application Metadata
  • View

3. Next go to the Business Management Tab. Verify that User Settings is set at the Organization level for Read permission, and the remainder of the privileges have a minimum of User access.

Dashboards also need to be configured for them to be available to users in the mobile app. This is easily accomplished by opening your D365 solution and within the Components area, select Dashboards. Choose the Dashboard which you want accessible from mobile devices, select Properties, then select the box to Enable for mobile, choose OK and save. Then move onto the next Dashboard, which you want available, and repeat the same steps.

You can also limit the entities, as well as form components which display in the mobile app. Navigate to you D365 solution and within the Components area, select the entity you wish to be available on the mobile app. Ensure that the ‘Enable for mobile’ box has been ticked.

Configure Mobile pic 5

Next if you wish to only show certain elements of an entity form, open the main form for the entity, and open the Tab Properties, Section Properties and/or individual field properties, and tick or untick the option for ‘Available on phone.’

Bring your data to life with D365 Reporting

Written by

Dynamics 365 is a great tool for storing your business data, but if that is all you are using D365 for, then do we have news for you! One of the biggest values of D365 is the ability to create reports gaining valuable insight from your data. These reports can be setup in a variety of ways depending on your environment and organizational needs.

Do any of the above diagrams look familiar to you? If your response is “WHAT ARE THOSE!?” then you, my friend, are missing out! All the above are reports based on D365 data. These D365 reports can be run directly from D365 which gives users ease of access to analysis of business data. There are several types of reporting options available for D365, some are out of the box, while others require a bit more work to setup. With that in mind, many organizations opt to export their data to Excel and then use Excel to create reports, when they could be using these much richer options instead.

D365 out of the box comes with report building functionality, in the form of Charts and Views. Users can setup Dashboards incorporating these components, which can help them take their first step into the world of reporting. The CRM Report Wizard allows users to build reports using filters and conditions, like Views, with a touch more functionality and flexibility over the latter options.

While these out of box options are great, they do have their limitations which is why we also provide external reporting options. SQL and XML Reports are great for generating more complex reports and documents. However, if you are looking for an option that is more robust, and intensely eye-catching, then Power BI is the way to go. Power BI is one the most powerful BI and reporting tools on the market and integrates seamlessly with D365. Power BI allows for powerful drill down capability and smart slicers to filter your data however you like.

Reports are a great way for organizations to better understand performance, and with the various report options available, you are not limited to a specific visualization type. Data can be displayed through bar graphs, pie charts, map representations, grids…just to name a few! Maximizing the reporting options is great for upper management, who want a quick, high-level representation of how the business is doing. But wait there’s more! Automated reports can be generated with a click of a button and often require no additional maintenance once they are setup, reducing time and effort and improving efficiencies.

D365 reports can be made for all aspects of the business from financials and sales to marketing and service. With all these options at your disposal, why not try out reports for your business today.
